Hello all I am new to this forum so I am sorry if this topic has already been covered.

I recently bought a Pelikan M800 black/blue and was puzzled that it had an all metal logo on the cap.
I have contacted Pelikan today and this is what I was told, please see the attachment. Hope this is useful.

Best to all,

Bob

I'm sure that this has been discussed in other threads but it doesn't hurt to have the link. Thanks for providing it. Personally, I rather liked the older logo. And, since I'm well stocked with M800s and M1000s it is probably just as well.

I just got a new M805 with the new logo and I'm not a real big fan.

Thanks for the replies.
I'm new to this game and hadn't seen this new type of emblem before.
I like the pen though, and was surprised how dark the blue stripes are in real life.
Mind you the UK is like Mordor at the moment so everything is dark I suppose!

Regards

Bob

I like the new metal cap and logo. Why would you want plastic instead of a 24k gold plated cap? Definitely looks classier.

Very true. I guess it's the legibility of the logo...

People are often more conservative than they think.

I think it looks good. Over two years or so in pens, I have changed my mind to what looks good, more than once.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Modern Pelikan nibs are excellent.

It's a myth that EN/PF/vintage nibs are better.

My M400 tortoise arrived carrying the newly designed cap logo, and I'm happy with it. It looks very high-tech and classy IMO.

I never really thought the old logo seemed appropriate for pens that cost hundreds of $, but there was something so nice and comforting about the understated character of the old logo. It reminded me of Pelikan's seriousness and committment to quality over other luxury pen brands that make so much of their corporate logo. I think the new logo is alright -- it just might add too much 'bling,' especially on the models (800, 1000) with larger caps. I'm about to order an m1000 so curious to see if it'll have the new logo.

Just thought about it -- will it change the weight? And by how much?

I also like the modern Peli nibs, like M800 that is stiff, but buttery smooth. However I like more, if nib has a bit of flex, like modern M1000. Of course, M1000 nib is not a flex nib, but, for my taste, and everyday writing, a springy nib (like M1000) is the heaven. Souveran nibs from the 80's and early 90's are soft (or springy) too. They are great!

Pelikan vintage nibs, like semi-flex from the 50's are also nice, but, in my opinion, not for my everyday writing. I have 2 of those Peli from the 50's and just use them at home. They provide a great writing pleasure.

Will the matching ballpoints, mechanical pencils and rollerballs also get the new metal logo? I'm especially curious about the m400 ballpoints and mechanical pencils that have the push button mechanisms. Thinking of buying a set and would like it all to match.

I wonder... where in the world could I find just the metal button by it's own, out of a cap?
